It was a cold brutal winter this year. The Netherlands had went minus 16 degrees Celciius. I was so thrilled to be able to ice skate on a frozen lake. The Alps is covered with even more snow and happy skiers say they could ski until May this year.
I was at the Austrian Alps a week ago. Look at this mountains covered with great flurries of mass translucent hexagonal snow crystals. Snow flakes fluttered and stayed. I could not help but feeling a sense of purity witnessing this white snow.
This sense I could relate to the Chocolate Lava Cake I baked some weeks ago.
Chocolate Lava Cake so pure, chocolaty and good. And the warm white chocolate melts inside depicts snow's ultimate intention, warm, melt and transforming to liquid.
A more sophisticated name for a Lava Chocolate Cake is Moelleux? Yes this time my ramekins were some shells. Thought the white chocolate would depict the gem in a shell.
It was warm later in the week, despite on top of the alps and at a higher altitude. This guys enjoy a different activity when temperature went up to 10 degrees Celcius even at 1800m on the Alps. Sun felt so near to us. Okay I am ready for spring. Especially after I have a bruised black eye from a fall while skiing. No, I was not checking these guys out at the time. Now I need sunglasses. And summer.
